You’re invited to our 2021 fundraising webinar
During these changing times, easyfundraising is a pandemic proof fundraising option for your Shed. Head over to their free webinar on Friday January 29th at 2.00pm to find out how it works, see a live demo, get advice on how to sign up and ask the easyfundraising team questions. If you’ve been before they are sharing some new info that will be useful.
It’s free to attend plus there’s a prize draw with a chance to win £25 for your Shed. More than one member can attend so please spread the word to other Shedders too!

We’re celebrating! This was an International Men’s Day with a difference! We were nominated for the Men and Boys Coalition Special Crisis Award – and WE WON! It was a very accomplished field and we’re over the moon! Salute to Men’s Sheds across the UK continuing to give men hope during these crazy times!
It is with great pleasure that we can announce support from the National Lottery Communities Fund in England to provide PPE for all English Sheds.
What on earth can Sheds and individual Shedders do to navigate this season of ever-changing covid rules and guidelines?
As many will be aware, Lockdown in England is upon us again from 5th November until at least 2nd December.
We’re supporting the Urological Health campaign from @Mediaplanet. Learn more about how COVID-19 has impacted prostate cancer diagnosis, what to do when you have erectile dysfunction and advice on handling BPH from key thought leaders, onlinewww.healthawareness.co.uk/urology and in today’s Guardian.
The government has introduced new lockdown rules, so we’ve made a document to help you make sense of how the rules apply to your Men’s Shed.
It’s nearly twelve months since Church Crookham and Fleet Men’s Shed opened the doors to our purpose-built workshop next to the allotments on the Crookham Park Estate. And what a twelve months! If anyone had said that in six months’ time we’d be closing the doors and the country would be in lockdown, we would have thought that they had put something in their tea, but how true they would have been.
It was a great surprise to
The Silvers’ Workshop, Reading to receive a call from Jacqueline Fieldsend,
ASDA Tilehurst, Community Champion. She was interested in knowing when we hoped
to re-open the Workshop and if a representative could meet her at the Tilehurst
store to discuss our plans.
In the last week there has been some excitement in England around the doors of Sheds being able to open. We have been waiting for further guidance and below are relevant ‘snippets’ from the UK’s Governments Frequently Asked Questions and Guidance for the safe use of multi-purpose community centres.
